Describing the long-gestating movie project which is based on Bruce Wagner's script as 'very, very dark', Pattinson admits that he still doesn't know when the production will begin.
Robert Pattinson's thriller "Cosmopolis" hasn't opened in theaters, but the actor already announces a new project with its director David Cronenberg. The "Twilight Saga" actor confirms that he will team up with the Canadian filmmaker once again in a long-gestating project called "Maps to the Stars".
The British actor, however, admits that he's not sure when they would kick off the production. "I don't know if I'm doing it next," so he tells Entertainment Weekly. Cronenberg himself reveals that he would also love to tap frequent collaborator Viggo Mortensen for the upcoming project.
"Maps to the Stars" is based on a screenplay written by Bruce Wagner. The story revolves around two child actors who are ruined by Hollywood's depravity. "It's about child stars," says Pattinson of the plot. "It's very funny. It's very, very dark."
Earlier on Thursday, June 7, it has been confirmed that Pattinson and Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" has finally got its U.S. release date. The intense thriller will make its way out onto the cinemas on August 17, the same day when Lionsgate Films' actioner "The Expendables 2" and Focus Features' animation "Paranorman" open nationwide.
